What policies and documents should my school or setting have in place?

If you provide children and young people with access to the internet and technologies you should have the following in place:

  • Online safety policy – Details the technical infrastructure, filtering provision, safeguarding measures, levels of education and training for staff, parents and pupils.
  • Staff acceptable use policy – This document governs staff use of technologies and the internet.
  • Online safety audit – All online safety incidents should be logged to provide an audit trail of actions taken and individuals involved.
